Before you deploy vRealize Operations Manager, verify that your environment satisfies the requirements for this deployment. 

IP Addresses and Host Names

Verify that static IP address and FQDNs for the vRealize Operations Manager application virtual network are available for the first region of the SDDC deployment.

For the analytics cluster application virtual network, allocate 3 static IP addresses and FQDNs for the nodes and one for the load balancer, and map host names to the IP addresses. For the remote collector cluster, allocate 2 static IP addresses and FQDNs.
